Neither plant nor animal, fungi inhabit a kingdom all their own. They
are surprising and wildly diverse, ranging from the button mushrooms at
your local supermarket, to yeasts, to shockingly colorful specimens that
look like they could be from another planet—and they’re enjoying a
moment, thanks to the hit documentary by director and cinematographer
Louie Schwartzberg. Introducing Fantastic Fungi, a brand-new calendar
inspired by the film that celebrates fungi in all its forms.
features a gorgeous, full-color photograph showcasing a fungus
species in its natural habitat. The Fly Agaric, with its bright red cap
and white spots. The otherworldly Ghost mushroom, which glows with its
own light from within. And the Yellow Stagshorn, resembling a sea
anemone emerging from the forest floor.
Detailed captions describing the
species and its habitat accompany each image. It’s the perfect gift for
foragers, nature lovers, and mycologists—armchair and otherwise.
